Chicken Tikka Recipe

Chicken Tikka Recipe


1 kg. chicken
1½ tsp. ginger (Adrak) paste
1½ tsp. garlic (Lehsan) paste
bunch fresh Coriander (Dhaniya) leaves
3-4 green chilies
1 medium onion
1 tsp garam masala
4-5 whole dried red chilies
½ salt (according to taste)
6 tbs. yogurt OR 3 tbs. lemon juice


  • Mix all the spices together. Put in a blender and make a paste.
  • Make 4-5 deep cuts on each side of the chicken pieces. This will help it cook better on the inside as well as giving it a better flavour.
  • Coat the pieces with the paste and leave to marinate for a few hours preferably overnight in fridge.
  • Then BBQ or bake in oven.
  • If baking in the oven use an aluminum tray covered with foil for the first 20 minutes at 375o F.
  • Uncover, turn the chicken over, and cover it up again. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. By this time the chicken should be cooked.
  • Increase the temp to 4500F , uncover and bake until the top is dry and the cuts that you made have ‘opened up’.
  • Turn over and when it looks done – it’s done!

Serve with salad and naan
Serving: 2 to 3 persons
